Classic Country Line Dance Workshop 11/13/16

In response to inquiries about where to learn some of those “Old Line Dances” by dancers and students from various Adult Education classes, various dance groups and local dance venues, I took a loose survey of what people are looking for. The list consisted of several dances that are routinely called out at the Cadillac Ranch Restaurant (Southington, CT) and a bunch of old favorites that were dating back to the days of N.E.W.D.A.‘s inception.

The workshop was held at Dance Hall 360 and was led by Aric Lemieux, local DJ and social dance instructor.

The balance of popular, difficulty level and some flexibility of more recent ones was taken into account and here’s what we came up with:

Boot Scootin’ Boogie
Boot Scootin’ Boogie (local variation)
Cowboy Charleston
Dizzy
Redneck Angel
Swamp Thang
We Are Tonight

See ya on the dance floor!
